that's a real tough question, melissa. it's hard for me to understand why she was approved for the surgery. did she get the lap band or the full gastric bypass?
over the long haul, given the high risk of vitamin deficiencies, and calcium absorption problems, she MUST MUST MUST take her supplements. osteoporosis is a real possibility.
without more information, it's not easy to give a more detailed answer... i wish her all the best.
